Forget Mr. Number, use Blocklist... ->

    ByrdDroid , Sep 6, 2014 :
    On my old phone, I had the Mr. Number app to block calls from those not in my contacts. I was bummed out when it didn't work the same on the OPO. But I finally found that the OPO had a good call blocker baked into Cyanogen Mod... It just wasn't real obvious.

    Here's how to block all unsolicited calls and texts: bring up the phone-> Settings -> Blacklist -> Settings (symbol bottom middle) -> 1) Private Numbers -> Block incoming calls; 2) Unknown numbers -> Block incoming calls & Block incoming texts.

    This does the same job as the old Mr. Number app.

    what if the hospital calls about a loved one in emergency room, does the phone block that?

    The only problem with this app is if people with a mobile decide not to disclose their number when calling you.

    Is that Gwang Soo in your signature.

    Based on my opinion, blocking private numbers are a good idea, if someone don't want you to know what is their number than there is no reason for us to also know what they have to say.
    But, unknown numbers, I will leave that unblocked. It is impossible to not have anyone whose number is not saved in your phone calling you.
